The experience is held at Fond du Lac High School and will includ managing and balancing a monthly budget.
Students select a career that interests them and will then be instructed to live on that income for a month. They visit booths that simulate what it would be like living on this income — paying utility bills, child care expenses, house payments, phone bills, etc. During this role-playing experience, they make money management decisions such as: Should I rent an apartment or should I buy a house? Should I buy the sports car or should I buy the mini-van to drive around my three children?
